Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Glenn. Sorry this has taken so long. The link actually expired. We had an amazing time celebrating our anniversary in your home. Everything was perfect. I was blown away by the fact you left nothing out. You thought of everything to make it such an enjoyable stay. Will definitely recommend your home for sure. Thank you again for a wonderful time.

Best girls weekend trip ever

  • 5 of 5

This place is 5 star approved by 7 picky moms! We've been going to the beach for girls weekend for 5 years in a row, usually staying in hotels, and this was by far our favorite lodging experience ever. From finding treasures on the beach to soaking in the hot tub, lots of memories were made. I've stayed at many rental homes with my family in the past and this is by far the cleanest, most well-stocked, just kick your feet up and relax place I've ever stayed. Glenn truly wants you to not have to worry about anything. The fresh flowers, kuerig pods, and disposable coffee cups with lids were just some of the special touches you just don't see anywhere else. Every time we needed something, we found it in that house! If it tells you anything, we booked for next year WHILE we were there! Can't wait for next February!

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the sounds of the ocean. The house was clean, well designed, and very comfortable. Loved the gas fireplace. The bedrooms were spacious and the beds were perfect. Overall, the location and house were ideal for a family getaway.

Truly fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

This gorgeous beach house is well kept and comfortable. The views and and atmosphere were exactly what we were looking for. The owner was friendly and called to check on us when we first got in. The place was stocked with everything you could need. They supplied bathroom toiletries, towels, and bedding and kitchenware. We will definitely be back!

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Glenmor Cottage, and once again, it was amazing. Our little dance troupe does a yearly retreat and this spot has been perfect for us 2 years in a row now. The house has everything we need, we dance for ~6hrs a day in front of the awesome mirror, we bring all our meals and use the well-appointed kitchen, watch sunsets over the salt marsh, explore the beach, and soak in the hot tub. It's in a good location to explore further afield, but also a great haven for staying put. Thanks again!

Charming bayfront cottage among the dunes!

  • 5 of 5

Exactly as advertised! Very quiet, cozy, and comfortable. Stayed at the beginning of February knowing the weather would not be compatible with lounging on the beach, and specifically selected this property for the hot tub, which we used every night, as well as the fire place, which was in constant use as well. One suggestion - the particular fragrance of the air fresheners was a bit overwhelming at first, but we go used to it quickly and wasn't a big deal, but perhaps a more neutral scent would be worth trying. Also, I was a bit surprised at how far out the tide actually goes when it's low (there really only is a sliver of usable beach, and it's pretty rocky.) The rest of the land out toward the water is a fairly vast exapanse of mud flats, and if it's the same case in the summer, I'm not sure if entering the water without walking through deep mud would be possible, even when the tide is in, so if you are planning to stay during the warmer months and going swimming off the beach behind the house, I would strongly recommend doing some research on the beach and/or checking with Glenn, the owner. He seems very nice, quick to respond, and clearly cares deeply about his property, and it absolutely shows. We had a wonderful time, and check in and out is a breeze with the keyless entry system. If you are looking for a quiet, somewhat off the grid waterfront retreat where you can just relax in the hot tub and enjoy the view and abundant nature, then this is the place for you. If you're more into a lively beach experience with shops, boardwalk, and dining steps away, Rehoboth might be a better bet, though we didn't mind the 30 minute trip there every day for dinner, and were happy to leave "town" afterward and arrive home to a quiet beach house for drinks and a night time soak in the hot tub :)
